The Weekend

The next Colorado Woman Within Weekend was supposed be held at the JCC Ranch Camp in Elbert, Colorado on October 9-11, 2020 but it was cancelled due to COVID-19.  We are hoping to do something in Spring 2022.  Information on a future weekend will be posted here.  

The Woman Within® Weekend is Woman Within International’s signature program.  Over two days, you are given the opportunity to reconnect with the part of yourself that intuitively knows what is right for you – your ageless wisdom. The Weekend offers a series of experiential activities, guided meditations and focused individual and group exercises. These processes have been carefully designed to help women find and access their inner power to support themselves in their daily lives. In a supportive environment, each woman has an opportunity to reclaim her wholeness as a woman.

Registration will be available through Woman Within International’s website.   In addition, a list of other Woman Within Weekends and  workshops can be found on Woman Within International’s website here.  Scholarships to the weekend may be available.

Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 4.26.46 PMThe Woman Within Weekend and Community have been guiding lights for me on my journey to find my happiness. I was an unhappy burned-out working mother feeling overwhelmed and disconnected especially from my children. The weekend was instrumental in providing tools to break life patterns and connect with other women. I have discovered self-love, self-compassion, self-worth, and most importantly, my relationship with my children flourishes and it started with the Weekend.


angelaMy own weekend seems like a lifetime ago, and yet it was just over a year ago, in CA.  The awakening that has taken place in my life since, is almost unbelievable.  I went into my weekend exhausted, burned out, hurt, silenced, and stuck.  I came away feeling like I could do any thing.  I let go of so much that I was holding on to, that wasn’t mine to hold. And in the continued process, I’m able to welcome more love and intention for myself and others, and allow my dreams to become reality.

I am so incredibly grateful for the weekend experience, in addition to the skills to continue doing the work, and the beautiful souls committed to becoming better versions of ourselves, to walk alongside in this journey.  I’ve spent my whole life trying to fit in, looking for a tribe to belong to.  But now, I’ve discovered that what I really long for is to love and belong to the woman in the mirror, the woman within.
She is beautiful. {I am} beautiful, wise, strong, gentle, loving, playful, and free.


triciaThe Woman Within Weekend was a healing and opening experience that led me to be a more authentic version of myself. It allowed me to accept all of who I was and release what kept me held back from that reality. That was over 15 years ago and I continue to know, embrace, live and lead from my truth!


cecelia I drove to the Colorado Weekend last May, I was curious and a bit nervous. Yes, I had read all the information and talked to folks but wondered how it would be for me.  As the Weekend came to a close on that Sunday and I was driving home, I had such a feeling of being ‘free’- beginning to find me again.

It was an amazing experience – joyous, at times hard, valuable, supportive. It is a time of women supporting other women. You never feel you’re alone on your journey.  It was the hardest thing I have ever done and the most rewarding. The Weekend continues with me to this day.


Prior to my weekend, I had been in a tailspin. I felt as though I had forgotten who I was 50085479_1983996371678496_6313294070454157312_nand my old way of doing things was getting me nowhere. I was depressed, angry and lonely. Nothing was working for me.

My Weekend was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am so grateful to the women that got me started with the Woman Within community and encouraged me to attend the weekend. During the Weekend I realized that I had spent the vast majority of my life believing that my needs were always secondary to whatever else was out there. I had years of unexpressed emotions bottled up inside me. I was holding the lid down so tight on all these unmet needs and emotions that I was unable to be the person I wanted to be.

Did I mention how amazing my Weekend was? Of course it didn’t feel like it at the time but thanks to the beautiful, caring women who were there, supporting me all the way, I came out of my weekend with a new lease on life. I found my voice. I learned that it was okay to have needs and emotions and that I was free to express them any way I wanted to. I learned safe ways to deal with my anger and fear.

It’s been almost a year since my Weekend. I still carry the tools I learned and use them all the time. I’ve been working with the women in my circle since and I have a safe place to deal openly with issues that have plagued me most of my life. I’ve become much better at identifying my needs and I have a place where I can talk about them and discover effective ways that I can meet those needs. I am so grateful to be a part of this loving community where I have found so much caring support and complete acceptance of who I am.


49895789_1978542055557261_8122421796898078720_nI went into the Women Within Weekend with a hope that I would grow, understand, and appreciate myself a bit more following the Weekend. I gained far more than that.

I have been through some hard circumstances and situations in my life, as many of us have, but I felt as though I had done a good amount of work to facilitate the healing process prior to my Weekend. Women within blew me away at how much more understanding I still had to embrace in order to fully honor, love and accept myself as the woman I was created to be.

I grew a different understanding and appreciation for who I am and had multiple levels of healing transpire when I was able to place myself in the unique weekend experience. There was a powerful and beautiful energy amongst us all of the women. No judgment, no expectations, just a pure and authentic opportunity for each women to embrace the experience for exactly what it meant to them. I left with a deeper understanding of love and compassion for myself, in a way that I had never experienced before.
